Where is your time

   Where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble! For you have as many gods as you have towns, O Judah.
    -- Jeremiah 2:28, New International Version

    Money?  Power.  Freedom?  How about ourselves?  Success?  Our ego, or ID?  What is it that drives us?  Where is the focus in our life?  How is it that we divide our time up?  So many questions, yet they point to one thing, what is truly important to us?  Who is it, or what is it that is our god?  Who is truly lord of your life?
    Hear the Good News, Christ came for us, and with his arrival brought to us a focus for our life.  Simply put, love the Lord your God with all your might soul and strength, and love you neighbor as yourself.  To love God, we respond to God through prayer, praise, service and worship.  This is how we make God our Lord.  When we love our neighbor as ourselves, we are saying thank you to God and praising Him for creation, for we were created in His image.  Not to mention what Jesus did for your neighbor too.  In order to Love you neighbor, you must start with yourself.  Take some time today and look at the things you do well.  If you don't know, ask someone that will be honest with you, ask me or ask a family member.  Why not ask God.
    Of the possible focus points in our life, God is the only focus point that will be there with you always.

       Dear Heavenly Father, of the many false gods that are crowded into my world, I want You, my true God, to be my focus.  Help me be faithful to You and allow me to have my life be a reflection of You and Your presence.  In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
